Dear Headbanging Hostess,

Lately I've noticed that I'm getting hairy where I used to be bald and bald where I used to be hairy. What's up with that?


The first thing I'd check, Chuck, would be your birth control pill. Check with your gynecologist about altering the level of hormones she's giving you. I've grown some hair in funny places but I switched my pill so now I'm just bloated all the time.

Removing hair is pretty easy these days so lets concentrate on regrowing some of the hair you so desperately miss.

According to my research there are some key nutrients essential to growing hair - Protein, Iron, B Vitamins, Essential Fatty Acids, Vitamin E and Sulfur. These nutrients can be found in foods such as liver, brewers yeast, tofu and dark green leafy vegetables. Sounds delicious, doesn't it? You can also find them in meats, eggs, nuts, fish, legumes and cottage cheese.

And of course stay away from caffeine, sugar, fat and carbonated drinks.

Enjoy your new head of hair, Chuck!

I had my tubes tied after my 13th son Damian was born on 06/06/06. So while I guess it could be hormone related, it's not a direct result of being on the pill.
